B&W 16th Topsy Turvy Birthday Cake

So I am happy to report that I got my first gig from a market contact. I was hoping that by doing the local Friday market here in town it would get the word out that I AM FOR HIRE and I.make.cakes! I hope this is the first of many to come. This one was a sweet surprise from a mother to a daughter. I love being a part of these kinds of special celebratory events.

ImageI was sent a picture to copy, and I did my best to stick to it. I will say that fondant letters are not my friends. I redid that 6 like four or five times because as I would try to jam that skewer in to give it stability (and a way to stand on the cake) the whole number would get so jacked that it was beyond repair. I will have to read up on these and get some more practice to get them more crisp and clean looking. Other than that this is by far a better effort on achieving that topsy turvy look than I have done in the past, so I was pretty happy overall, and so were the customers, so HAPPY DAYS! Onto the next…
